Not Just a Number~

numerology-number-27

You know there are just some people whom you meet in life , that the minute you meet them, you know that you are going to be friends. You’ve heard people say it, the saying is “You click.” They get your jokes, and you just carry on conversations , not even realizing that you have things in common , because the visits just flow so smoothly, it’s like you’ve been friends for years. I’ve not been blessed to meet very many people like that, but was just lucky enough to meet one not very long ago. I like having friends, and wish that I had more close ones. But having a close friend can be a lot of effort. Or at least if you do it well and honestly. The true give and take of caring about another person and their family life is not something you take on lightly. I think in today’s FaceBook world, when people say, “Oh, I’ll “friend” you , it has kind of lessened the meaning of that word. But to really be someone’s friend means a lot more than just being a number on someone’s “wall” Or to me it does. When I am your friend, really your friend, you can count on me to really be there for you. Maybe I won’t be that “close” friend with everyone , but I’ll be more than just a number or a name on your wall.

  1. This is true. In the olden days, when somebody said I have 10000 followers, you’d be impressed by his leadership skills. Today all you need to get 10000 followers is a twitter account and an internet connection. Thank you world wide web.

    • So true Krishnan. That number of followers would mean you WERE somebody. You were a great leader of men, and ruler of people Now it doesn’t mean anything. People just click on the button and boom , now you have a “following”. But WHAT exactly are we following? Sort of the blind leading the blind in this particular circumstance.
